|A Novel Compensating Technique for Power Factor Improvement in Power Electronic Systems|
Power electronics systems are non-linear systems, which consume more reactive power and also the loads they feed are mostly inductive loads which leads to a poor power factor. Various compensation techniques are available to bring the power factor nearer to unity. In this paper, a novel compensator is proposed, where in-phase and quadrature components of the supply current are vector-controlled. Implementation of this compensator in a power electronic system operating with a very poor power fact...
